The Concept

Today, in Western countries, the process of recycling and transforming organic manure into soil is very developed and takes place in everyday’s life. However, the tools available today for recycling are not always comfortable and sometimes are even harming the process.

For example, organic garbage cans are filled with plastic bags with organic manure. Of course, nylon and Plastic are not biodegradable and emptying these bags requires time, manpower and effort.

Most bags manufactured for organic waste are not 100% biodegradable and therefore it disturbs the process, but throwing organic garbage into the bin and without a bag is not hygienic and causes bad smell and attracts flies.

The EASYCOMPOST bag is made of 100% biodegradable waterproof cellulose and designed with a special layout which prevents liquids from leaking out. The bag contains natural “brown waste” in the exact quantity that is necessary for compost process of the organic garbage and makes the recycling process and compost easy, clean and comfortable.

It was important for me to design a convenient and innovative product so that even other countries in the world, such as in Africa, that have not yet developed a good supporting system for the process, will be able to use it and start an arranged and convenient system of organic recycling.


EASYCOMPOST is a special bag for BIO manure which is made of Bacterial Cellulose. A bacteria that grows on sweetened water and makes the perfect material for biodegradable bag.

The idea was to create a circular system which is based on an existing system of delivery of fruits and vegetables.
The customer receives a box with EASY COMPOST bags already inside. After using, he returns them to the farmer filled with organic manure. The farmer will add the bags to his compost and will achieve excellent soil.
In exchange, the customer will be able to receive a discount for the following boxes, a process that will create a mutual commitment.



In addition, we made a homemade kit for growing the cellulose. When the material is dried on a particular surface, the cellulose takes the shape of that surface. The user will grow it into the shape of the bag’s layout. He will grow, fold, glue (using water only!) and use it as a 100% biodegradable bio waste bin.

Dried sheet. The color depends on the medium it was grown in.



The bag can be used for several days without having bad smell. It contains a compressed brick of brown waste (dried leaves and trees) at the bottom. The size of the brick will keep the right ratio between brown waste and bio waste inside the compost.





After using the bags the user will throw it to his own compost at home or will return them to the farmer.
Pouring water on the compost will make the brick expend and create the perfect mix for a great compost.




The layout was designed with no joinings at the bottom in order to prevent leakage of liquids
